Hadrian’s Wall Path runs for 86 miles (138 km) between Bowness-on-Solway and Wallsend (Newcastle) along the line of the Roman Wall completed in AD122 under the Emperor Hadrian. This National Trail crosses northern England from Irish Sea to North Sea and offers many chances to look at the forts, milecastles and interpretation centres within this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The route is clearly waymarked and well supported by public transport, giving flexibility to walk it in linear sections or as loop walks. Although the book’s detailed description runs from west to east, it also includes notes for east-to-west walkers. For conservation reasons, the Partnership that manages the route asks you to walk the Path only between May and October. Our guidebook was first published in 2011, and revised in 2016 to cover several diversions and various other updates.

This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy Hadrian’s Wall Path:

detailed route description for the walk from Bowness to Wallsend
concise directions for the walk from Wallsend to Bowness (west-east)
the history and anatomy of the Roman Wall
summary of forts and visitor centres
wildlife, habitats and other background
information about public transport and travel
lavishly illustrated, with 70 colour photographs
map of the entire route (1:100,000)
on rainproof paper.
